From the 3rd floor

What differences do you see?

We don’t have names for this first grade class but liked the comparison of the two shots.

This was the 1953-1954 first grade class at Frankllin School taught by Edith Lowe. Maybe she received both pictures and was given a choice of which one to reprint for the students. 

Looking at the two photos reminds us of the age-old game of finding the differences in the photos. What differences do you see?

 If you can, please send student names to news@webbcity.net.

Sentinel bound volumes are now in the Genealogy Room

The WCAGS has accepted ownership of the complete collection of bound volumes of the Webb City Sentinel, from 1983 (after the fire) until the final issue on Dec. 30, 2020.

Those issues can also be viewed on microfilm, along with much older issues.
